Sunday Salon: Evolving Visions and Voices in the Met's American Wing

  • 10 February 2019
  • 218 Spring St, Catskill, NY 12414
  • Arts and Culture
  • Historical

Join Dr. Sylvia Yount, Lawrence A. Fleischman Curator in Charge, for a discussion of how the American Wing—founded in 1924 for the display and study of historical American decorative arts—is expanding its collecting focus and gallery narratives to create a more pluralistic experience for 21st-century audiences. A fascinating conversation is going on in American art today, inviting diverse voices to consider our conceptions of art history now and going forward.

The Sunday Salons are presented in Thomas Cole’s New Studio once a month from January through April at the Thomas Cole National Historic Site in Catskill, New York. All Salons start at 2 pm and will be followed by audience discussions. Now in its 16th year, the Sunday Salons present today’s most engaging speakers on topics relating to American landscape painting.

When: 2pm-3:30pm

Where: Thomas Cole's New Studio at the far end of the Historic Site.
